Abstract

Abstract Fluoroquinolones has been rarely associated with exacerbation of myasthenia gravis (MG). We present a case of MG following a treatment with prulifloxacin, a new broad-spectrum oral fluoroquinolone. Fluoroquinolones of any generation may interfere with neuromuscular transmission and should be avoided in patients with MG.
